30DBC – Day 02 – A favorite movie

Probably my favorite movie right off the top of my head is The Perfect Storm. Plenty of good looking men, action, a fantastic soundtrack, and ultimate tragedy. What more could I ask for in a movie? I literally turn it on anytime I see it on TV. Mike thinks I’m crazy, and maybe I am, but it’s a great film.


30DBC – Day 01 – A favorite song

My favorite song ever is probably an odd choice. Carol Of The Bells is by far my favorite. I love both the vocal and instumental versions. Something in it just screams happiness to me, and in the holidays it’s a staple in my life. The first time I ever heard this song I was a child, watching Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. I remember vividly watching that movie daily (I may have been a smidge obsessed!) and that was the beginning of the love affair between me and that song.

What’s your favorite song?

The Infamous First Blog Post

I want to be all puppies and rainbows and tell you that this blog is going to be intense, personal, interesting, consistant, all with a flare for the dramatic.. but in reality, it probably won’t be. But it is about me. So welcome.

Teeth #9 & 10

Aidan surprised me today by sporting not one, but TWO molars! Both of his upper first molars are out, and one bottom first molar is almost out. Now we’re at 6 on top, and 4 on bottom.

Christmas Card Time Has Arrived

I’m a little behind the ball this year, but it’s time to think about Christmas cards already!
I normally send out generic cards that I pick up at the store, but this year we are wanting to do photo cards to show family and friends what Aidan looks like now that he’s one year old!
We have used Shutterfly multiple times in the past. We’ve ordered calendars, we ordered our birth announcements through them, and of course we’ve ordered prints as well. I’ve never had anything bad to say about Shutterfly, so of course when I saw their Christmas Photo Cards it didn’t take much to twist my arm into wanting to order from them.
I’ve been looking around for a while now and I can’t figure out which type I should get!

Option 1: This would of course have a picture of Aidan front and center!


Option 2: This could be either a family shot, or a single shot. I was thinking more family style, as shown above.

Both are 5×7 cardstock, and I just know they will be wonderful quality if my past experiences with Shutterfly have anything to say about it! I do believe I prefer the folded card, just so I can personalize each card without having to include a seperate note for each, but I’m leaving it up to you guys! Any preferences about which one I should get? Any ideas on what type of photo I should use in my cards?

Tooth #8!

#8 is out! 4 on top and 4 on bottom!
